Dementia is a 1955 film that was made as a silent movie. There was a music soundtrack but no dialogue. It is a dark, suspenseful look at madness in the style of German Expressionism. Many consider it a visual masterpiece, but at the time of it's making it had a lot of trouble getting out. It was later taken over by Exploitation Films, renamed "Daughter of Horror", and had a terrible voiceover narration added (done by the then unknown Ed McMahon). The narration destroyed the integrity... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: dementia, daughter of horror, john parker, iceman bob, horror film, feature film, psychological...
aka "Dementia". Could have been called "Alice in Film-noirland" A very dreamlike story indeed. Not so far from "Carnival of Souls" or Orson Welles' "Trial". John Parker was only the producer. Co-star Bruno VeSota is suspected to have been the real author of this treat. more info on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047976/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daughter_of_Horror favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topics: Bruno VeSota, nightmare, horror
Dementia is a black and white film from 1955. It is a silent film and there is not a single line of dialogue in the entire film, nor are there any storyboards to tell the viewer what is going on. The film was later re-released under the title Daughter of Horror and had the dubious benefit of an added narration.
